Lonely Planet review

Seven blocks northwest of Plaza de la República rise the prominent spires of this revamped university-run museum. Forged of iron in Dusseldorf around the turn of the 20th century, parts of the old building were brought over in pieces and assembled in Mexico City to serve as a pavilion for trade fairs. Much thought goes into the Chopo’s organization; ramps are used as showroom floors, and high ceilings permit larger-than-life exhibits showcasing contemporary art from Mexico and abroad. The museum also hosts contemporary dance performances and film screenings.
